BIRTHDAY balloons were released from Clydebank Town Hall this week to honour a young Drumchapel dancer who died suddenly at the weekend.

Zoe Bremner would have turned 15 on Monday but took ill in the early hours of Sunday at a property at Dundasvale Court, Cowcaddens.

Two other teenagers, both 15, were also taken to hospital after falling ill and were later released. 

Friends in the Dancelicious school of dance, where Zoe was a member, released the balloons including ones with the teenager’s name as they sang happy birthday.

Laura Nicholson, a co-owner and teacher of the dance school, shared the public video and wrote: “All of Dancelicious singing happy birthday to our angel in the sky along with all of Zoe’s close friends and family.”

Earlier on Monday, Zoe’s school also paid tribute to the popular dancer.

Kay Dingwall, head teacher of Knightswood Secondary, said: “This is such tragic news and our heartfelt sympathies and prayers are with Zoe’s family and friends at this extremely sad time.

“Zoe was a really lovely girl and will be sorely missed by all the staff and pupils at the school.

“We will do all that we can to help and support young people and staff who will obviously be deeply affected by this saddest of news today and during the difficult days ahead.”

There have also been hundreds of condolence messages and support for the family across social media since the tragedy.

A crowdfunder now has raised more than £2,000 towards a £4,000 target to help pay for the funeral.

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with alleged drug offences and was expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
